A spider, a snake, a steep set of stairs. Our reason informs us there’s nothing to worry about but our feelings inform us otherwise. A small insignificant creature can send a person into states of terror and anxiety. It’s a panic attack repeating itself. An emotional memory triggered by association, but real and intense to the point of organising one’s life around the phobia.
Hypnotherapy can restore perspective and control. Not only does the spider become very small, one’s calm sense of being in control is restored. Phobias can be diminished, fade away and almost forgotten.
